Interpretation of quantitative soil data is needed to judge whether or not measured values are 'high', medium' or 'low', given the type of soil, the climate and the land cover.
Pedotransfer funcions can help to make this art slightly more transferable. BD Pedotrasfer excel workbook was developed for calculating reference value for BD and C organic. To use the Workbook you need to download.
